Last year at this time I wrote a post about how I just don't expect much romance from Mark, and how I'm mostly OK with it. Last week, for Did You Know?, I wrote about how Valentine's Day came to be.
As I'm sitting here writing this, my mind is on the loss of Whitney Houston, THE diva of my generation who sang some of the best love songs ever sung. The most memorable is obviously I Will Always Love You from The Bodyguard soundtrack. I cannot tell you how many times I turned that song up and sang at the top of my lungs with Whitney! That movie came out in 1992, the year I graduated high school and had my second eye surgery. I listened to that soundtrack A LOT. Don't even get me started on The Greatest Love of All, which I'm sure had a positive influence on many girls my age. And I know we all remember the single greatest performance of our National Anthem at Super Bowl XXV in 1991.
I couldn't help but be thinking about Whitney Houston when thinking about love. But this is a Listicle!
It would be nice if my Valentine's Day went like this:
3. Fancy Dinner
4. Decadent dessert
My Valentine's Day will probably go more like this:
6. Dialysis for Mark
7. Housework for me
8. Kids' tutoring
9. Dinner at Red Robin for all 4 of us
Yup, such is the life while raising a family. But it's OK, because I will be with the people I love the most, and that's what really matters.
